Is there a simple way to count the characters of all text fields in a Powerpoint presentation?

I tried exporting to Rich Text Format (.rtf) to do the count in MS Word, but the export function only exports some text fields (outline text) and misses small annotations, lists, etc.

Some tools like Count Anything or Anycount are not available for Mac OSX.


Does the built-in count not work?

  • No, as opposed to the function in MS Word, it counts words but not characters. – Jan Eglinger Aug 17 '17 at 4:42
